Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Towboating On The River

Went by the Louisiana overlook this afternoon to see if there was any river boat traffic and we got lucky.  Saw two towboats making their way north to their destinations.  It's almost like deer hunting...sometimes you see them and sometimes you don't!  It's a pretty day here in Vicksburg with a high of 82 degrees with rain coming in after midnight for a couple of days.  

M/V  Miss Kathy in plain view!

M/V Miss Kathy headed for the bend in the Mississippi River.

This guy pulled away from the sandbar but stopped to let M/V Miss Kathy go by and here he is standing up in his boat.  Note - no life jacket on!

M/V Bob Stith coming in view with a wide empty load.

The guy in the small boat made a mad dash to get to the other side of the river between the two towboats.

A very wide load with 25 empty containers.

M/V Bob Stith is on his way!
